The editors, thinking- that some statement and description of the central heating plant which is being added to Wellesley's equip- ment, would he of interest to both the alumnfe, who are not here, and the under- graduates, who are, have gathered some in- formation concerning the matter, for publi- cation in College News. To begin with, the following statement of the financial situation has been very kindly made for us by President Hazard : "Ever since the beginning of President Hazard's administration she has felt the im- portance of the establishment of a central heating plant. In each of her unnual re- ports attention was called to this. Last year Mr. Rockefeller offered to install a plant at a cost not to exceed .?150,000, pro- vided a like sum was raised at commence- ment time, 1902. The President was loth to call upon alumnas, who had done so much for the College so recently. She therefore found it exceedingly difficult to meet the conditions in time, and had abandoned the scheme of having the plant begun in 1902, when Mr. Rockefeller, deeply impressed with the importance of the saving to the College (for it is estimated it will save about §10,000 a year in running expenses) offered to begin the installation of the plant on the assurance that one-half the amount was pledged, and to extend the time until commencement, 190.3. This is the situation at present ; there remains to be raised the sum of $75,000 and to seciire the actual pay- ment by commencement day, 1903, of the whole of the $150,000, which will go toward the epdownient of the College. This the , President and Trustees have pledged their best efforts to secure. As a matter of fact, $26,.501 have been paid in — the one dollar being the spontaneous gift of an alumna of the College, who asked to have it placed to the credit of the endowment fund. The matter is one of urgency, as the time before commencement is not very long, and the President is busying herself to secure these funds." Meanwhile the work on the plant is pro- gressing rapidly. When we came back to College in September, we found the grounds in a state well calculated to humble our per- haps excessive pride in their beauty. The beginnings of the power-house could be seen in the hollow usually known as the "Gravel Flats," down back of the Chemistry Build- ing ; and from there radiated in all direc- tions long lines of unsightly ditches, whose borders were garnished with mortar boxes, piles of bricks and boards and old barrels. One ditch ran diagonally through the lawn in front of the Shakespeare House, crossing the road Once about half-way up the hill to College Hall, and again just beyond the curve at the top, then on past the dining- room windows, and so to the extreme west end of the building. Another, beginning also at the site of the power-house, went around the base of the hill, past the Art Building, the Tan Zeta Epsilon House, and thence aeross the road and up the hill to Stone Hall. A third connected this main line with Music Hall, going directly past the west door of the chapel. These three were the most noticeable. We rejoice to say that they are now almost entirely filled up, and the contractors have promised that by Thanksgiving the grounds will at least be "whole," though not entirely clean. The laying of the conduit along the side of the hill was a particularly difficult piece of engineering, owing to the lowness of the ground. This difficulty has been overcome by raising the conduit above the ground level ; and in order to avoid the unsiglitly, curved rise which this would make if left uncovered, the direction of the road is to be changed slightly, and carried farther up on the side of the hill. This will make the road cover the " excresence " entirely, and the rhododendron bed on the other side will be extended over the ground where the road is now. The heating is to be by steam, and the fixtures already in the buildings are to he used without change. The possible loss of heat in the long distances to be traversed between buildings, has been guarded against by the particularly careful structure of the conduits. These have a cement bottom, and are surrounded by double brick walls, between which there is an air-chamber — an extremely poor conductor of heat. The only building needed by the plant is the central power-house, which is to be of red brick, and as inconspicuous as possible. The necessarily tall chimney is to have as graceful a shajje as circumstances will per- mit. While we all regret the necessity of having our beautiful grounds torn up, and carefully keep away all relatives and friends who have never seen Wellesley, we realize at the same time the great benefit which this im- provement will bring us, and are willing to put up with the unpleasantness for the sake of the good to come. Nor must we forget the great thought and care which President Hazard and the Trustees have given to mak- ing the process and the result as little ob- jectionable as possible to the grounds. They have used every possible expedient to keep these as beautiful as before, and our warm- est thanks are due to them for their thought- fulness, when we consider how much worse it might have been without that thoughful- ness. The Sophomore Reception, One of the i^leasantest parties in years was the Sophomore Reception given Satur- day night. The Barn looked its best, deco- rated profusely with green things and with many "specially imported" electric lights. Near the door was a flower-laden table from which each guest received, on entering, a bunch of pansies, the Sophomore flower. Another variation from the usual order of things was the absence of dancing, that element which has always been the bane of every girl at these receptions ; the commit- tee had arranged for promenades instead, and all found it a comfortable innovation. The night was sufficiently pleasant to allow the guests to walk outside under the full moon. Indeed every feature of the recep- tion contributed measurably to the enjoy- ment of all present. Besides the Faculty guests there were some three hundred Freshmen, the hostesses numbering about two hundred. Those who received were Dean Pendleton, Miss Poyn- ter. Sophomore President, and Miss Nelson, Vice-President. President Hazard and Mrs. Durant, who had also expected to receive, were prevented from coming. COLLEGE NEWS College IRews. Press of N. a.

Holt, 1903 The editor, looking up from a tUiok pile of short stories, the accumulated spoil of several English courses during the past three years, wipes away her tears, and sends forth from her inmost heart a plea. For weeks she has been reading tales of every sort of human sorrow ; blighted affection, grinding poverty, sin, shame, sickness, lin- gering and sudden death, morbid introspec- tion, insanity, suicide — is it any wonder she weeps ? It must be a result of the great law of contrast, that some hundreds of hap- py girls should choose only ghastly subjects for their stories ; it certainly is easier to work up an atmosphere of patlios than any other kind. But please let us write some- times about the peojile who many and live happily for ever after ! We do not want nonsense tales, as a rule, but we do want sane, healthy, happy stories which shall contradict the modern tendency toward the morbid and sad in our magazine literature. There are occasional instances where pathos is a fine and necessary element of a story — but all its effectiveness is lost if we have nothing else. At present it is almost ira- jiossible to find a modei'ately cheerful story for the Wellesley Magazine. Hence the tear- ful plea of the editor, who expects to be- come a victim of melancholia unless she is given something hapiiy to read !

( It is not well for a child to go many weeks unnamed ! ) Now we know that Wellesley girls can write good nonsense rhymes from the experiment of the Maga- zine in 1901 — and here is a golden opportun- ity for more. We don't want to copy non- sense verses from other college papers ; we are just as clever as they, and we want to write our own ! It is fun to write them and fun to read them. Every other apiieal that the editors have made has met with a prompt and loyal response, and this has given us confidence to make tliis one. Let the result show tliat our confidence is not misplaced. Golf Tournament. A handicap tournament for IS holes was held on the Wellesley Golf Club course on November 10, for a cup offered by Mr. Benj. H. Sanborn, President of the Chib. The cup was won by Miss L. A. McDonald, 1904, with a net score of 90. It. is to be noted that in this tournament Miss Marie L.

On Thursday evening, November 13, Miss .Jenkins and Miss Terry entertained the Southern Club at Wood Cottage. Miss Moffatt, a member of the club, was present, and introduced Miss .Johnson of Cornell University. Tlie latter spoke about the work now being done for higher education in the far south. It is her earnest wish and that of all who are interested in the south, that a college for women should be established there, as there is at present no college for women — in the strict sense of the word — south of Baltimore. At a regular meeting of the Debating Club, held in College Hall Chapel, Tuesday night, the plans for the year were discussed, and the following officers elected: Chairman for the year, Miss Elizabeth Taylor, 1904; Secretary and Treasurer, Miss Dixon, 1903. THE FACULTY SCIENCE CLUB. The monthly meeting of the Faculty Science Club occurred on Tuesday evening. Professor Bragg gave a paper on the Liquefaction of Gases with a summary of recent work on the properties of matter near the absolute zero of temperature. Miss Grace Davis spoke of " Becquerel Fiadiations," illustrating by lantern slides, and experi- ments showing the jiroperties of Kathode rays, and S rays, which led to the discovery of radio-active substances. The portrait of Mme. Curie, whose work has made large contributions to this subject was shown. Miss Wright, the head of the Physical Training Department at Radcliffe, will hold a special drill on Monday, November 24, at 11, A.M., in the Radcliffe Gymnasium. She has invited all Wellesley students who are interested in the work to come and look on.

Village students will from now on iind their copies of the Maga- zine placed on the table in the Village Eooni, instead of near the book-store, as formerly. Some copies of the November Magazine still remain, unclaimed, in the Village Room. Miss G-race Dean was elected from the class of 1903 as member of the Executive Board of The Student Government Association. She takes Miss Stockwell's place on the Board. Miss Florence Piper, ex-1903, visited Miss Lukens at Wilder Hall last week. Miss Udetta D. Brown, 1903, returned on the 13th from New York, where she had been for the past week. Miss Gertrude Knight, 190-5, spent a few days last week at her home in Buffalo. Mr. and Mrs. W. D. Kelly of Germantown, Pa., visited their daughter, Miss Jeannette Kelly, 1904, last week. Miss Maud Jessup, 1904, has gone home on account of her mother's illness. Miss Lucia Proctor, 1903, has been obliged, on account of ill health, to leave college. The class feels deeply this loss, which comes so soon after Miss Stockwell's departure. Miss Elizabeth Campbell, 1902, left for her home in Philadelphia, Thursday, November 13, after a long visit in TVellesley. Janetta G. McGregor, 190.5, will not return to college this year on account of the death of her brother. Miss Elizabeth Campbell, 1902, entertained the debate team of last spring at the Alpha Kappa Chi rooms on Monday night, Novem- ber 10. A very entertaining game was the diversion of the day, and the guests. Misses Lord, Mills, Warren, Hunter, Dixon and Conover, pronounced ihe second reunion a delightful one. Miss Emily Mills entertained the same group of girls on Wednes- day evening, at College Hall. The prize was then given to the girl who worked out in clay the most lively and significant model of something connected with the Vassar debate. With this gay party, a kind of farewell to Miss Campbell, the series of reunions closed. FREE PRESS. I. A .Junior told me, the other day, that since she had been at college she had read nothing not required in her academic work. This is the text of my sermon. If she has not yet learned a wise distribu- tion of time, so that she can never employ her individual taste in such a pre-eminent matter as reading, college is not for her. Study is not the chief end, even for girls who must also " do " athletics and committee meetings. If one has not time, when she has ex- cluded fudge parties and aimless conversations after ten o'clock, to accomplish all importunate tasks, to read a reasonable amount at her own pleasure to maintain a moderate correspondence, and to take long walks alone, it is her academic work that should suffer, for the destruction of private life is the death-blow to individuality, and the girl who prostrates herself utterly before the idol of her college work, is blotting out her personality. This molding into the mass is what follows from absolute devotion to any one occupation — we all know it in the day-laborer. Attention and time are needed to retain the original integrity of self, but its retention is far more worth while a purpose than the search for academic perfection or even the accom- plishment of executive work. There are many, many who need no admonition on this subject. Their time is entirely consecrated to the joy of self-hood. But the over-conscientious ones needs a reminder of the time due to self, and its ultimate value. We need a little time for ourselves, that the originality we lack so distressfully may take care itself. A. B. WELLESLEY INN.

The problem of what to do with handkerchiefs in tliese days of pocket-less gowns, becomes serious; but there is one solution of it against which a protest should be made. A damp wad sometimes finds its way into the right hand of its owner, with the result that two fingers are offered in greeting or gratitude by tlie entering or re- tiring guest, the other two being fully occupied by securing that elusive bit of cambric. Our grandmothers would simply have looked at a hand so offered, until the offender became conscious of her rudeness. Why do we shake hands at all? Is it not first and fore- most a sign of our common humanity, a recognition of our mutual interest and concern for each other? This must be the fundamen- tal idea. Horses rub noses; we shake hands. Coldness and anti- pathy unconsciously find their way into the perfunctory hand shake and varying degrees of cordiality, respect and affection are expressed in it. Simplicity must lie at the root of all good manners. How can we be simple if we allow a flimsy bit of materialism to interfere in the expression of our true feeling? I have seen a young woman deeply conscious of the gratitude she owed a distinguished person for words which had reached her very soul. Naturally she was too shy to say so, and how was he ever to have any intimation of her true feeling, when on being presented she offered him two fingers? Shift the handkerchief; drop it; step on it; do anything with it, rather than allow that consequential bitof cambric to imagine itself so important as to secure more attention from its owner than the per- son she greets. A Senior. III. We all know and all lament the crowded condition of our library; we all wish ardently and loudlv that we were rich enough to present the college with a fine, large, light, airy library building. I admire this view, this potential generosity, but since we are not any of us rich enough to present the college witli a new library building, I would suggest that we turn our energies in another direction and de- vote ourselves to making the most of our present accommodations. I recognize that it is practically impossible to keep the library quiet for the ten minutes between periods, and that considerable walking about is necessary all the time, but continued whispering is seldom necessary, and giggling is never necessary at all. There is notliing essentially funny about the library and the student most lacking in self control need have but little difficulty in restraining her mirth, if she will not use the library as a room for social meetings. There are many of us who have to use the library constantly and who cannot so concentrate our attention on our books as to be oblivi- ous to loud whispering and laughing directly behind or beside us. I know that girls have often taken two hours to accomplish work that they could easily have accomplished in one hour, had the library been comparatively quiet. Let us all consider how much a little noise on our own part may disturb our busy neighbor, and try to be more quiet in the library. 1903. IV. I do not speak with the authority of Ruth Ashmore, yet it seems to me that there is an element of rudeness in the attitude of the Wellesley girls toward receptions. One might think that a reception was an affair for which many invitations were issued, but to which no guests were expected to come — or an opportunity for certain people to talk at length with guests of honor, while waiting for college friends to appear. This rudeness comes from a conceited quality in us all I think, — for if we were not well-satisfied with our Wellesley friends, would not more of us seek the inspiration which is offered us in the opportunity to meet artists, litterateurs, and workers from the field of action we hope soon to enter? Do let's have our Faculty and Students' Parlours crowded on reception nights. We are throwing away good opportunities when we miss knowing the great men and women who come to us. B. V. May a member of 190i make a suggestion to the girls who study in College Hall chapel? Students are asked to use the chapel for study during the crowded hours in the library, if the chapel is not in use as a class room. On the chapel door is a schedule giving tlie hours when the chapel is put to such use. Will the girls please be more careful to see whether the room is in use before opening the door? It is rather annoying to lose an important statement of instructor or student because the door is being noisily opened and closed. Jewelry for Young Ladies, DRESS-OUTING-BUSINESS.

The following list of bill.s paid by an English town in the ancient days of Miracle Plays, was no doubt a matter of course to the people of that time, but to us it seems decidedly funny: Pd. to Eauston for cock crowing, 3d, Pd. for mending Hell, 2d, Pd. for painting of Hell mouth, 3d, Pd. for setting the World on fire, .5d. We are glad to notice that this last item is considered of the most importance, but still we think that a remuneration of five pence for setting the world on fire is entirely inadequate. Fkau Ecke.

It will contain artistic photographs of college buildings and interest- ing spots about the campus, of crews, athletic teams, and so forth — everything that a stuilent at Wellesley this year will want to hold in her memory after she leaves. The cover for the 1003 calendar is to be a great variation from that used heretofore, of novel and elabnr- ate design, and while adding very much to the beauty aiul desirabili- ty of the book, will not increase its price. It will be on sale early in December, at the price of $1.00. B.
